What an incredibly biased and exaggerated article, clearly with unhidden agenda of maligning Buffhidm, world's most peaceful religion, that is frrr from dogma and bigotry.
Where are the monks going wild?
No where. Is the writer also trying to indult the intelligence of the readers.
It is the buddhist Yakhine (Rakhine is corrupt pronounciation) Burmese or Mranmars who overreacted, in fear of Rohinhyas colonialism.

There are Muslims who are Burmese citizens living peacefully with fellow citizens who are ovrtwhelmingly Buddhist, in cities like Yangon and Mundalay.
These Burmese muslims and muslims elsewhere are to understand that the issue is not religion. It is about illegal immigtatio that started under cover of English colonialism. The coloniser brought in East Bengalis as coolies. Others followed as they could enter Yakhine now part of British India withput any restriction. When the coloniser left they shoulf havr left too, or the new Burmese government should have sent them back to East Pakistan. Britain should have taken responsibility for the repatriation of these illegal immigrants back to Pakistan.
Like all other colonial legacied, this issue was caused by colonialism. It is the time bomb the English left behind just like the Panglong agreement that stupid Burmese supporters of SuuKyi Aris, Burma's arch traitor, worshop like the Christians worship the Bible and the Muslims worship the Koran. Now the Rohingyas turn the table on the stupid supporters of NLD, National Lrague for Democracy, ostendibly headed by Traitor SuuKyi ARIS, who fradulently uses her late father's name AungSan, having married Englishman Michael Aris.
AungSan was assassinated by the English.

we copy this from Islamic website. dont write rubbish in future.

"The Rise of Islam - Muhammad, a prophet astute in statecraft and military strategy ‎and an inspired statesman, changed the history and destiny of Arabia and of much of ‎the world. He was born about 570 to the Banu Hashim family, reputable merchants in ‎the tribe of Quraysh in Mecca. According to tradition, he was a penniless orphan who ‎married Khadija, the widow of a rich merchant, somewhat older than himself. He ‎probably engaged in trade, and is said by some to have had responsibilities in ‎connection with the Ka'aba stone. When he was about forty years old he began ‎preaching a new religion, eventually meeting the opposition of Meccan oligarchy. ‎Initially, Muhammad made few converts and many enemies. His first converts were ‎Khadija, Ali (who became the husband of Fatima), and Abu-Bakr.

The Hijra - From about 620, ‎Mecca became actively hostile, since much of its revenues depended on its pagan ‎shrine, the Kaaba, under the protection of the Quraysh, and an attack on the existing ‎Arab religion was an attack on the prosperity of Mecca.‎ Following the death of Khadija in 621, Muhammad married eleven other women. ‎Tradition relates that he and his followers were invited to the town of Yathrib by ‎Jewish and Christian tribes after they were no longer welcome in Mecca. In 622, the ‎first year of the Muslim calendar, they set out on the Hijra, the emigration to Yathrib, ‎later renamed Medina, meaning "the city" where Muhammad concluded a treaty with ‎the tribes of Medina. A large number of Medinans, known as the Ansar (helpers), ‎were attracted to Muhammad's cause. According to several sources, early versions of ‎Islamic practice included Jewish practices such as the fast of Yom Kippur and prayer ‎to Jerusalem, perhaps influenced by the Jews of Medina. These were eventually ‎dropped, and the direction of prayer was turned to Mecca. ‎

Battle of Badr - In.."

It took many centuries for Islam to get to Hindu India sub-continent

Burmese traitors like DVB (Demented Voices of Bullshits) must stop supporting fkae stories of Yakhine as Muslim.

later Burmese kings took title Khan too, when they conquered all East Bengal.

that the confusion. but obvious for a king to take local title too.

Khan is originally Han, chinese word. Like tea is chai. dont talk rubbish if u dont know histry.

“Rohingya is Bengali.”

Ha ha!! You lie to the world. Lie to the world is your attitude???

1500 years ago there was no Islam religion. 1500 years ago, Muhammad wasn't born. 1500 years ago, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Confucianism existed, but Islam didn't yet.

If you say the killing of migrants are justified? They are not migrant of years but decades, they didn’t came by choice but by force of British, there were too helpless like you Burmese’s in the British regime, and they have served Burma for so many centuries, today whatever you enjoy in Burma is includes there blood and sweat, you Buddhist guys also speared across the world in India and many place should we also start killing Buddhist- no this is not humanity.
The great emperor of India Asoka after fighting the war of killing he was so pain fuel to see the wounded and dead body of soldier that he embrace to Buddhism only because he thought Buddhism is peaceful religion. If today he would have seen the cruel face of Buddhist of Burma then he would have had regretted for his decision, is that Buddhism has lost the essence of peace of harmony,
The great Buddha was not able to see the pain of suffering on mankind he left all the luxury of his life, by seeing you dirty monk of Burma he would have been ashamed of you. Has the great Buddha told you guys to kill the migrants?

The Buddha never prohibit the protection of family and relatives from harm.

One piece of information that was left out of these news article is that Muslims have been terrorizing Burmese villages one after another. But none of the Muslims anywhere in the world or anyone have done or said anything about the situation.  After so many Burmese villagers have been beaten , shot, rob and raped by Muslims, these villagers have to do something to stop the violence perpetuated by Muslims and protect their family. Finally they decided to give the Muslims a taste of their own medicine. Of course now the Muslims pretended to be innocent and said they have not done anything, but we can see that before the riot erupted  the muslims have been terrorizing Burmese villagers continuously for a period of time: 

Buthidaung: Some remote Buddhist villages in southern Buthidaung Township, 80 miles north of Sittwe, are under threat of damage due to the rampant Muslim robbers in the area, report local people widely. 

A villager in Kwe Gomaw Village said, "The authority is not protecting our village right now. So many families are thinking of moving to more safe places like downtown Buthidaung, where many army battalions are stationed." 

The village of Kwe Gomaw is located near Nyung Chaung Nasaka outpost in southern Buthidaung Township, and the village was hit by dacoits on 1 January, 2011. 

"At 12 pm on 1 January, around 30 armed Muslim robbers surrounded our village. After that the robbers entered our village and robbed property from all the houses one by one. When a villager refused to give over his property, a robber beat him with his gun and injured his head. Properties worth 3 million kyat were taken by the robbers," the villager said. 

After the robbers left the village, they hit another Buddhist village in the area, Thein Daung Byint, where many people of the Dynet tribes are living. 

During the second attack, the village chairman's wife was severely wounded when some of the robbers opened fire on villagers who were trying to fight back against them. The woman is now hospitalized in Buthidaung in critical condition, although her condition is improving. 

A villager from Thein Daung Byint said, "We are now afraid to live in our village because we have no safety, despite that our village is located in inner Buthidaung Township, not in the border area. Moreover, when we informed the Nasaka officers about the robber, the officers beat us because were unable to defend ourselves against the robbers. Now we are facing many difficulties living in our village." 

During December, 2010, a large robbery also took place in Shwet Bying Village under Zaydi Bying circle in Rathidaung Township. The villagers lost 30 million kyat of property. The robbery was also committed by a group of armed Muslim dacoits. 

The Muslim robbers have never robbed any Muslim villages in the area, having so far only struck Buddhist villages in Buthidaung Township. Because of this, many ordinary citizens, including those in the Muslim community, are anxious that the robberies might foment conflict and lead to riots among the people in the area.

Yes burma/myanmar is buddhist country and muslims must respect the main religion there. But i would like to remind you that when Japan invaded Burma and carried out horrendous atrocities at that time many muslims gave their lives and fought the Japanese in British regiments and helped to free Burma. My own family fought in Burma in Arakan my grandfather never made it back his grave is in the Akaran mountains some where. I would just like to see peace in Burma as it is a country close to my heart. I hope these differences can be solved peacefully and everyone can live in harmony and make Burma/Myanmar a great country.

Who else believes it?
Only Muslims believe it and no kafir believes it.
Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Zoroastrians do not believe it.
Adam committed the original sin (the very first sin). If 1st prophet is Adam, the original sin was committed by the very first prophet of Islam???
So later actual sins were committed by the later prophets of Islam.
Prophet Elijah commanded his men to slaughter 450 prophets of Baal.(1 Kings 18:22 & 18:40)
The Levites did as Moses commanded, and that day about three thousand of the people died.(Exodus 32:28)
Moses was angry with the officers of the army—the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds—who returned from the battle.
“Have you allowed all the women to live?” he asked them.“They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the Lord in what happened at Peor, so that a plague struck the Lord’s people. Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.(Numbers 31:14-18)
I quote from the Bible not from Quran, but these prophets mentioned in the Bible are claimed to be prophets of Islam & Allah by Muslims.
"Islam is a religion of peace." - what Muslims claim in voice
"Islam is a religion of peace. Kill anyone who says otherwise." - what Muslims claim in heart
